Why people liked Jesus

Via Twitter and this article, I found this Jon Swanson post on why the people in Luke 15 liked Jesus. Here are the bullet points:

1. The sinners knew that just like the shepherd in the story, Jesus was coming looking for them....

2. The sinners knew that just like the sheep in the story, their lives were messed up....

3. The sinners knew that just like the shepherd in the story, Jesus was wanting to hold them not scold them....

4. The sinners knew that being around Jesus made parties great....

5. The sinners knew that Jesus cared more about them than His reputation....


Read the rest.
